Thankful for You


As we enter the week of Thanksgiving, I can't help but think about how grateful I am for you. JANES is a ministry filled with the love and dedication of the most talented and gifted women, living out their faith in the most inspirational ways! I am so blessed to be your leader and even more blessed to be your friend. Your determination to reach the women of our community and beyond is so contagious and I know God has great things in store!

Thankful for You!

"I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge— because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful."

-1 Corinthians 1:4-9

Men of Bay Area Fellowship
(MoB Ministry)

Let your husbands, brothers, fathers, sons, friends and co-workers know about Bay Area Fellowship's new Men's Ministry (MoB Ministry)!

I've heard it said that a man will be accountable to God or he will just be accountable to himself. Certainly, we will all be called into account one day by the Father. So who is helping to keep you real? Who is the person that you have 24 hour a day access with? Maybe, you don't have that relationship yet. Here's a great way to get started. First, plug into one of the many men's groups that are available. This is one of the easiest steps and you will find that many of us struggle with the same things. I have seen God use these groups to help change and impact lives. My life included.

Next, prioritize your time to include meeting regularly.

Then, allow yourself to be transparent and real. It's one of the bravest things you will ever do.
